    Planned Parenthood chapters in Iowa, Missouri and Montana received just over $1 million in federal grant funding Wednesday to help Obamacare customers sign up for coverage, even as Republicans in Congress battle to strip the women’s health provider of any federal funding at all amid raging controversy over its abortion practice. The chapters were among 100 recipients of $67 million in so-called “navigator” grants doled out by the Obama administration Wednesday to nonprofits in 34 states that help people get covered under the Affordable Care Act. Two thirds of the recipients had received grants in previous years, and a pair...

    A new report from Ohio shows abortions there are at historic lows and 4,551 babies were saved by abortion in the last year alone after three Ohio abortion clinics either closed down or stopped doing abortions. Today, the Ohio Department of Health released the 2014 Ohio Abortion Report, revealing an 8.7 percent drop in abortions in 2014. This marks the lowest level since 1976, when record-keeping first began, and is almost 25 percent lower than 2010 levels (28,123 abortions). The new Ohio health department report shows 21,186 abortions on unborn babies in 2014, which is down from 23,216 abortions in...

    The Obama administration has steadfastly defended Planned Parenthood and its taxpayer funding throughout the scandal exposing its sales of aborted babies and their body parts for research. Now, new information reveals the Obama administration has been expanding funding for such research. The federal government has paid for so-called fetal tissue research for decades but the Obama administration, according to a report in The Hill, a Congressional newspaper, has expanded that funding. The report indicates the federal government spent $19 million on research involving the body parts of aborted babies in 1999 at the end of the Clinton administration. Now, President...

    A House committee will hold its first hearing next week investigating Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted babies and their body parts. This is the first hearing in Congress’ multi-committee investigation of the abortion business after a series of nine videos exposed how it is potentially illegally selling aborted babies and profiting from the sales. On Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at 10:30 a.m., the House Judiciary Committee will hold its first hearing in a series of hearings titled, “Planned Parenthood Exposed: Examining the Horrific Abortion Practices at the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider.” The hearings will examine the abortion practices of Planned...

    Cecile Richards has pounded the drum till its skin has worn thin: Women’s healthcare is in danger. Without Planned Parenthood, women will die. Women will have no way to obtain pap smears, breast exams, and birth control, unless the half a billion taxpayer dollars a year keeps flowing into her hands. On its face, this seems relatively ridiculous. We have Obamacare, which mandates “free” birth control. We have Republicans looking to make birth control even easier to obtain by making it available in stores. One wonders if Planned Parenthood got the memo from the Centers for Disease Control that aggregates...

    The takeaway moment from the latest fetal tissue video comes when a woman identified as Advanced BioScience Resources’s Perrin Larton recounts cases in which the fetus “just fell out” during an abortion procedure. Depending on what happened next, that could be an unfortunate accident — or it could be a violation of the national Born-Alive Infants Protection Act. Released Tuesday, the ninth undercover video from the pro-life Center for Medical Progress fuels the growing contention that those involved in the fetal tissue procurement business, including Planned Parenthood, may have broken as many as a half-dozen federal laws.

    The ugly truth about the business side of the abortion culture in America recently became even more gruesome. The undercover operation of the Center for Medical Progress revealed Planned Parenthood’s government subsidized abortion and political business has also been raising funds by harvesting and selling fetal body parts. Nothing is off the table – brain matter, eyes, hands, livers, hearts, lungs, and assorted tissue from aborted infants in various stages of development. The accompanying videos show Planned Parenthood abortion doctors talking about their work as if its just another day at the office, and they are negotiating bulk sales of...

    A new undercover sting video from the Center for Medical Progress shows a fetal organ procurement director complaining about how pro-lifers are making business difficult for baby organ traffickers. The video features a conversation between a prospective baby organ buyer/researcher and Perrin Larton, the procurement director for Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), a California-based non-profit organ middleman. In one portion of the video, Larton brags that while President George W. Bush banned federal funding for research on new embryonic stem cell lines, taxpayer-funded research on aborted baby body parts was not banned. “Now they’re trying to make abortion illegal, and that’s...

Now, extreme views about women? We expect that from some of the terrorist groups.”...

    Hillary Clinton’s support for abortion is longstanding and unwavering. But many Americans may be surprised to learn just how extreme her position is. A November 2014 poll conducted by The Polling Company found that just 13% of Americans believe abortion should be legal for any reason and essentially at any time during pregnancy. In other words, just 13% of Americans agree with Hillary Clinton on abortion. Here are 10 times so far in the 2016 campaign that Hillary Clinton has showed her extremism on abortion. 1) “Religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” to expand abortion. At a...

The video clips claim to show Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of fetal body parts for financial gain. Sen. Tommy Garrett said if federal lawmakers won't de-fund the organization, he's going to stop Planned Parenthood from collecting fetuses before they sell them. The Center for Medical Progress released the footage recently.

In 1998, the total number of abortions for the state was 82,335, according to the Florida Vital Statistics annual report. That number continued to rise until it peaked at 95,586 in...

The Democratic opposition research team’s report said that undercover videos revealing...

The news comes after reports that the House of Representatives is planning a vote on legislation in a couple weeks that would de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The two votes would follow one the Senate had weeks ago, which saw Senate Democrats filibuster and block legislation to revoke $550 million in taxpayer funding.

    The latest video from the Center for Medical Progress takes viewers on the inside of a tissue-procurement competition between for-profit StemExpress and not-for-profit Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), Inc. Two discussions with undercover investigators demonstrates why the relationship with StemExpress undermines Planned Parenthood’s claims that they do not profit from organ harvesting in their clinics, but it also raises a question about live births from abortions. At one point, ABR procurement manager Perrin Larton describes how some abortions from mothers produce actual births — and the implication is that the babies then become intact cadaver specimens:

In reality, the report is a pseudoscientific production by Fusion GPS, a political opposition-research company that has no forensic certifications. While the report, which contains multiple errors, set out to delegitimize CMP’s video evidence, it only provides evidence of the opposite: the report admits that “This analysis did not reveal widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation” and that it “shows no evidence of audio manipulation.” Planned Parenthood’s review of the undercover meetings with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Dr. Mary Gatter, Dr. Savita...

    COLD SPRING - A Baptist church in Putnam County is under fire after posting a controversial, anti-abortion sign outside its building. The sign outside the Church on the Hill in Cold Spring reads, "Defund Planned Parenthood... a person's a person no matter how small." The message went up a few days ago after videos surfaced suggesting that Planned Parenthood is selling fetal tissue. Pastor Tim Greco put up the message himself. Speaking with News 12 via Skype, he says that he wanted the community to know where the church stands on the issue. "I think the churches should stand up...

    In July, Reps. Andre Jacque (R-De Pere) and Joel Kleefisch (R-Oconomowoc) introduced legislation that would ban the sale of fetal body parts in the state of Wisconsin and not allow federal funding to go toward Planned Parenthood. The LaCrosse Tribune reported that the legislation was a response to the scandal surrounding Planned Parenthood buying the body parts of aborted babies. Now, nearly 700 faculty members from University of Wisconsin have signed a letter arguing that the bill would cut off “hope for patients” and deter biomedical students and the biotechnology industry from coming to their University because it shows “that...

    The U.S. ambassador to the Vatican said that during Pope Francis’ visit to the United States next month, he expects the Pope will urge the U.S. to embrace its history of welcoming immigrants. Ambassador Kenneth Hackett said the Pope’s immigration message will be important as lead GOP presidential contender Donald Trump has called for a border fence between Mexico and the United States and the deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, the Associated Press reports. “I think he’ll call us to continue to engage with it (the world), don’t throw any walls up around our nation, don’t revert to isolationism,”...

    August 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - As if we needed more evidence that many of those in the abortion industry know perfectly well what they are doing, along comes the latest undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). The video includes disturbing undercover footage of a conversation with Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, a biomedical firm that acquires the bodies of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood clinics. During that conversation Dyer infamously jokes with an undercover investigator about the need to warn lab techs ahead of time when a fully “intact” aborted baby's cadaver is being shipped to...

    Abortions in Texas decreased by more than 4,000 cases in 2013 from 2012, which officials attribute to anti-abortion laws—some of the toughest in the United States—passed in the state in 2013. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), there were 63,849 abortions in the state in 2013, down by 4,449 from 68,298 in 2012 and 72,470 in 2011. It was in 2013 when anti-abortion laws came into effect in Texas, according to LifeSiteNews. "We're now seeing the full impact of pro-life laws in Texas. The number of abortions has declined as life-saving legislation goes into effect," said...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has filed a lawsuit against the state of Alabama after Governor Governor Robert Bentley made the decision to yank its taxpayer funding. The state cut Planned Parenthood’s funding after a national scandal involving the abortion company selling the body parts of aborted babies. This is the second Planned Parenthood lawsuit against a state for its decision to revoke taxpayer funding — following a suit against pro-life Louisiana Governro Bobby Jindal after his state canceled a state contract with Planned Parenthood. After Louisiana and other states yanked taxpayer funding, the Obama administration threatened them — but...

    EXETER, NH, August 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — Planned Parenthood in New Hampshire is complaining that state funding cuts mean they have had to cut their hours, prompting cheers from pro-life leaders. New Hampshire became the third state to cut funding to the nation's largest abortion business, after undercover videos revealed officials calmly and jokingly discussing the sale of aborted baby organs -- and how Planned Parenthood abortionists can modify surgical procedures so as to obtain and sell intact aborted babies. As a result of losing some New Hampshire tax funding, Planned Parenthood has announced fewer hours of operation. They say...

    Seeking to divert attention from her admittedly unwise and likely illegal handling of classified material through her unsecured private email account, Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton sought to draw a parallel between advocates of defunding Planned Parenthood and Islamic terrorists. "Both groups relegate women to second class status," Clinton claimed. "Both deny women the right to control their reproductive heath. Both would force women to be vessels for carrying unwanted children into the world. Both espouse out-of-date ideas about how the world should work." GOP presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla) characterized Clinton's claims "as twisted and malevolent an inversion...

    Planned Parenthood in St. Louis was cited earlier this year for not sending pathology reports from abortions to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, as required by law. That was the latest item revealed at an Aug. 25 hearing of the Missouri Senate's Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life, which is investigating how Planned Parenthood operates in Missouri. The committee began meeting this month in response to the Center for Medical Progress' undercover videos depicting Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts. John Langston, a manager with the Department of Health and Senior Services,...

    Today, the Center for Medical Progress released the full, uncut video of the conversation between undercover investigators form CMP and top officials with StemExpress, which buys aborted babies and their body parts from Planned Parenthood. The full footage is of a shorter video that summarized the meetings earlier this week. The release of the full, unedited video also comes one day after Planned Parenthood released a new report claiming the eight videos released exposing it were “altered.” The abortion giant says the videos were manipulated and therefore not eligible for serious inquiry by Congress, which has launched two joint investigations...
